The Dynjandi waterfall in the Westfjords is the mother of all Icelandic waterfalls. Easily the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland, but very challenging to photograph.

There is every type of waterfall here. The strong flutes, the power walls, the delicate cascade and the main attraction – the huge cascade at the top. The major challenge here is that your lens is going to distort the shape of the big one. To get up to its level you have to be stood under it and looking up the mountain. I have seen some reasonable attempts from the side, but then that doesn’t really show the grandeur. My solution was to ignore the bigger picture and take a straight forward slice from the middle of the cascade.
